Worst female boss I ever had: Told us she was going to go to HR and report a male college for sexual harassment as a way to get him fired, because he wasn't productive enough. We reported her, and she was suspended for 1 week, and then was right back in her VP role. Second to worst female boss: put down the week I was off after my mother died as vacation instead of bereavement, because it made her books look better. I didn't find out until after she had left the company. Third to worst: held up my vacation request so she could put hers in for the same week, and get it approved, and then asked the top boss to deny my request so we would have enough coverage (yes, I reported her too). Worst male boss: Didn't give me a raise because took all my available vacation, which showed I wasn't as committed to the company as my colleagues. No contest, if we are dividing only by gender, I'll take male bosses.
